Full description
Nicknamed Little Marrakech for its great walls, street vendors and bustling center, Taroudant boasts beautiful treasures to be discovered, including its small medina and modest souks. On this day excursion from Agadir Hotel/Port, you’ll begin with a walk to the majestic ramparts and 9 arched doorways. Visit the craft bazaar, located in the city’s alleys, renowned for its fine silver Berber jewelry and its carpets. People come from afar to haggle for these Berber carpets. Surrounded by the High Atlas Mountains to the north and east and the Anti-Atlas Mountains to the south, Taroudant lies in the heart of a fertile valley. Continue on 30km to the southeast to the ruins of an ancient kasbah, perched on a rocky outcrop overlooking the village of Tiout and palm groves reminiscent of Marrakech. The kasbah has been transformed into a tourist restaurant that dominates the site. From the peak, take in breathtaking views of the High Atlas Mountains and the Souss Valley. Of interesting note, Fernandel starred in Ali Baba and the 40 Thieves, filmed in this palm grove in 1954. See picturesque 16th-century Berber towns on the road back to Agadir.

We really enjoyed our tour. The driver and guide was very nice and competent within his means. Unfortunately the tour would have been almost without and. Our pickup should take place according to your information (your agreement with the local company) at 8:30 in front of the neighboring hotel (RIU Tikida Dunas). We waited there until 8:45 am but nobody came. A volume ran in Arabic at the given phone number in Agadir. At Getyourguide I hang up after 4 minutes. We then took a taxi to the general meeting point in the marina at our own expense. Unfortunately the taxi driver did not find it. Then we drove back to our hotel and had already given up. Luckily for us, the tour guide and the other two passengers were waiting for us until 9:30 am in front of our (Riu Tikida Beach) hotel. He knew nothing of other pick-up locations. I have done many tours with GetYourGuide countries.

Overall We had a GREAT tour with Abdul. However, there was one aspect that we were very unhappy with and that you should address with all your guides. It started after we had a wonderful lunch at the Oasis in Tiot. We were directed to follow the restaurant owner down the road to see and ride the donkeys. We ended up taking a very very long walk in the hot sun on very rough ground. We were not told about the exstreme length of the journey and we were not told we should bring water. I’m 74 and my wife is 72. About half way to the end I had to stop walking and get on a donkey. Had We been told about the extreme length of the walk we would have remained at the restaurant while the other much younger travelers made the trek.

Total rip off

It was not a private excursion. We were squeezed into a small bus with about 14 other guests. In the morning we spent a sunde at a gas station for some unknown reason. We were rushed through the old town and market in Taroudant. But then to spend another 30 minutes in an argan oil shop with totally overpriced products. Instead of knowing about people and culture, there were old men jokes at the lowest level. We only saw the Kasbah from a distance. Not recommended!
